Hotline support for eating disorders and body image concerns is available in Belgium.

It's normal to feel disatisfied with the way your body looks some days. But feeling this way most days is unhealthy. Poor body image can lead to disordered eating. If you have any of the following symptoms, there are 2 free hotlines in Belgium that can help you:

  • Excessive thinking about food, eating, and body weight or shape.
  • Sudden weight loss or weight gain.
  • Weighing yourself often, sometimes every day or even multiple times a day.
  • Bruising easily with bruises taking longer to fade.
  • Lying to others about whether you have eaten so you can skip meals.
  • Mood swings due to hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiences.
  • Growth of a fine layer of hair on the body called lanugo.
  • Wearing baggy clothes to hide weight loss or to hide your body shape.

You may feel bad about how far your disordered eating has gone. Disordered eating and poor body image can cause feelings of shame and guilt. Often, these feelings make people want to withdraw from others.

Talking to someone about what you're experiencing can bring up uncomfortable feelings. You may wonder whether a stranger will understand you or how they can help. Crisis line counselors in Belgium are trained to help people cope with problems like yours. They will listen to you, support you, and give you appropriate guidance.

If you are ready to talk to someone about your eating or body image, you can contact a hotline in Belgium for free and confidential support.
